    Not really a surprise but looks like he's finally seen some sense and put on twitter he's hanging up his gloves. Correct call.

    Blokes a bit dense, but an exciting fighter with a good career and some world class victories.

    Glad to see both Khan and Brook retire.

    Who is Eddie gonna call out for Benn now?

    I hope he stays retired and doesn’t get tempted by a fight with Benn.

    Correct decision. Only retiring now as his only remaining money fight retired last week.

    Good decision, no way he could enhance his career by fighting on. Had some big nights to say the least

    The Maidana fight is one of my favourite fights of all time. What a brutal war.

    Great career. Maybe made some bad choices and was inactive at the wrong times but a world champion and made lots of money. I also think he was very funny at times albeit sometimes unintentionally.

    the most high profile mediocre boxer ever.

    never deserved the fame he had. But hes been in some exciting fights I'll give him that. Never known a boxer getting dropped or doing chicken dancing so much.

    This is the burning question.

    Kudos to both Brook and Khan in NOT seeking extra PPV Loot as our expense.

    Happy Retirement lads.

    Real boxing people will remember him as an exciting fighter with bags of talent and heart with an air of vulnerability about him. The same old muppets are replying to the news on Twitter with glass chin bla bla.

    Zero heart in the Crawford fight. Quitting from a punch to the leg when he had 5 minutes to recover. Possibly the most shameful quit I've seen
